If you are like me and you are a master procrastinator for Christmas Things, then welcome to the fastest and easiest stocking I have ever made! And now you can too! It is worked flat and comes together when you fold it in half, sew the edges and add some Faux yarn for the final touch!
I am always looking for a quick way to add some Christmas cheer and this is sweet to gift as ornaments, add some chapstick inside or use as a garland!
Use a smaller hook and maybe that super fine yarn that is cute but not been used up yet! These are adorable and I may be biased because I whipped them up myself but the quick easy portion of this DIY makes my heart sore!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
Feel free to post pictures of your finished projects and/or links to your shops so all can see! I love it when you tag me @arianaehall on all social media! Thank you for your support! I hope you enjoy it! Happy Crocheting!
Please no sharing pictures or patterns are allowed. Feel free to make as many to sell and gift. I just ask to give credit to Ariana Hall. Thank you!

Join into the first DC made, Fasten Off leaving a long piece of yarn to sew the sides of the stocking. (5 Double V - stitches)
With the right side of your work facing you (the picture showed above). Fold the piece in half, making sure the part you DC 6 sts is on top ( the longest part).
Should look like this in the picture below,
Now find the top two CH 1 spaces, this will be your starting point of where you start sewing down to the "toe" portion of the stocking, then fasten off.
Gently, turn the piece with the inside out to reveal your stocking with the right side out. Shown below.
With the Faux Fur yarn, join at the back of the top of the stocking opening and CH 1. SC evenly across the top and join. Fasten off and enjoy your new quick stocking! 🙂
